2009-2010 Independent Expenditure Database Grows by 50% in just 5 Days

There’s a considerable endgame being played by the purveyors of “Dark Money” in the 2010 congressional campaigns. During the entire period from January 1 2009 to October 26 2010, thirty thousand independent expenditures were reported to the Federal Elections Commission by shadowy political corporations that collect donations of unlimited size and for the most part never reveal the names of their donors. Today, just five days later, the number of independent expenditures reported to the Federal Elections Commission surpasses forty-five thousand. Today’s reports aren’t all in yet, but the reported spending looks to reach $50 million for the five-day period.

Who are the people behind this spending? I can’t tell you. No one can.
